Twists and turns and ups and downs - this book had me going down one path and just when I least expected it, I was catipalted onto a different path. And I loved it! Beyond predictable, but still enjoyable to try to see if I could guess as to where the story would lead. I randomly picked it up from my library's ebook collection and it fit into a challenge I do with a group on GoodReads.
A story of a wealthy father of three children who sent them away at a young age and belittled them from the moment their mother committed suicide. He hung his wealth over their head to ensure that they didn't cross certain lines. With a love child on the side, this quirky story did not end where I thought it would and I am beyond thankful for it. With a who dun it twist, this book was enjoyable to the last page.
